Ear Irrigation Cleaning Service

Ear wax buildup is a common problem that can be caused by a myriad of factors, leading to frustrating symptoms and even severe pain or damage. Ear wax is often the culprit when hearing aids do not seem to be working effectively.

 

Signs & Symptoms of Ear Wax Buildup

It is completely normal for your ear wax to vary in appearance, ranging in color from light yellow to dark brown. But if you experience any of the following symptoms, you could have a buildup of excess wax that needs to be treated:

Earaches

Itching or chronic cough

Tinnitus, which is a ringing/buzzing in the ears

The sensation of fullness in the ear

Sudden hearing loss, including partial hearing loss (usually temporary)

Causes of Ear Wax Buildup

The most common cause of ear wax buildup is attempting to remove it at home. You might think that using a cotton swab, bobby pin, or other objects is a simple way to clean out your ears, but this method has the opposite effect. In fact, at-home ear wax removal frequently leads to buildup because it pushes wax deeper into the canal and can cause a blockage. Individuals that wear hearing aids or often use ear plugs or headphones are more prone to excessive ear wax.
